What is the Best Vacuum for Dog Hair?

We all know shed happens when you live with dogs. Whether you have a double-coated fluffy boy or a sleek-coated pretty girl, dog hair can be a real problem during shedding seasons.  Fortunately, there are some great pet vacuums for tackling dog hair.

1. Dog vacuum and pet grooming tool

Pet hair isn’t just hair, it carries pollen and allergens too. The great minds at Dyson know this and developed the pet Groom Tool. It works with Dyson’s cordless range of vacuums, like the Dyson V15 Detect with its laser detection and anti-tangle conical brush bar designed to collect and release pet hair into the bin. Paige at Dyson says the pet Grooming Tool is acoustically engineered to give your pup a peaceful brushing and the self-cleaning angled bristles are designed to reach into the undercoat to grab those loose hairs before they drop. A cordless vacuum with the grooming tool is a great one-two punch for keeping ahead of the shedding.

2. Dog vacuum with anti-odor filters and upholstery tools

The overall favorite is the High-Performance Swivel XL Pet Upright says Emily at Hoover. Its heavy-duty powerful motor with WindTunnel technology is perfect for heavy shedders. It creates that edge-to-edge suction to get hair from hard-to-reach spots on every floor type and the 2-in-1 pet upholstery tool works great on furniture, stairs, and pet beds. It’s made for pet parents with a rinseable anti-order filter and PowerFlex Pet brush roll for a powerful clean.

3. Dog vacuum with power suction and easy cleanup

With its SmartSeal Allergen System and edge-to-edge suction, the Pet Hair Eraser Turbo Plus vacuum cleaner from Bissell is a powerhouse at trapping hair, dirt and allergens. The Tangle-Free Brush Roll prevents hair from wrapping around the brush and the Cyclonic Pet Hair Spooling System gives you an easy, no-touch emptying of the dirt tank. Every purchase supports the Bissell Pet Foundation and its mission to help save homeless pets, so it’s a win-win for all.
